Just watched the video glad I did not what I wanted I was looking for something to keep my fingers busy to give my iPhone a break
What about a rubik cube? It would keep your fingers busy.
The fidget cubes are better, I reckon. (I am a teacher, and have tried both with children who benefit from keeping their hands busy). I got them off ali express. About a dollar or so.
I have several colleagues who like to fidget with things and the fidget spinner is the quietest. So much better than listening to someone in the next cube click a pen. The fidget cubes are not that quiet but quieter than a pen clicking. If you work in a cube farm, get the spinner.
My Blackberry is my fidget spinner.
I might just keep my iPhone as my fidget spinner
There are fidget spinner apps now, so you can really do that.
I admit, while I think the spinners are pretty dumb, a friend of mine has a couple around his house, and when I was over there Saturday I played with them a lot. You kinda don't even realize it. This is why I know I must never own one.
Have you considered taking up knitting, crocheting or cross stitch? I like to keep busy, too, and crocheting is particularly good for that, as you can't drop stitches, it's compact, and when you get good at it, you don't even have to look at your hands.
Also, people seem less offended when they spot you crocheting, than they do when you've got your phone in your hand. For some reason, they never question whether I'm paying attention to them, if I'm crocheting. But if I have my phone out, they get cranky and assume I'm more interested in the phone than I am in them.
You can also make a quick and easy fidget by stringing some beads onto a key ring.
People find the vibrations, and the weird feeling you get when you move them about, rather comforting. To each his own.
Do what works best for you OP.
They're super cheap and fun to play with. Go ahead and get one, why not?
For those interested I found a fidget spinner on amazon for 1.95 it won't get here till July 14 so that tells me one of two things it's coming from China or they are very popular
I agree. I love my fidget cube. My son (ADHD, Anxiety) has one two. It's calming to have something to do with your hands while you're talking to someone, listening to a lecture, watching tv, etc.
I've got two cubes and one is very quiet.
I have a fidget spinner that one of my students gave me. I take it out at boring events lmao- I was at my sister's graduation the other day and i was fidgeting up a storm.
It's coming from China.
